Smashwords Interview

What's your book about, and what inspired you to write it?
15 Steps to Health Living incorporates many facets of health and well being including healthy eating, diet, optimizing nutrition, living longer, weight loss, dieting tips, mindfulness and brain health. I was inspired, in part, by my 105-year-old grandmother’s lifestyle.
I open my book with my healthy grandmother who lived to the age of 105 – healthy and happy: It’s fascinating how much the way she lived her life parallels what research studies are showing to contribute to healthy living and longevity. She ate nutritious foods, exercised, spent time in the sun to get her needed vitamin D, relaxed to handle stress, socialized, enjoyed humor, and had a purpose for living through her faith in God. Unfortunately, not everyone has my grandmother’s wisdom. Many people today eat poorly, exercise rarely, spend more time passively in front of a screen than actively doing mind games, socialize more on Facebook than out in the community, and lack purpose in their lives. Nor does everyone feel motivated to turn their lives around to a healthy lifestyle. This really hit home when I began giving speeches. People would share how difficult, even overwhelming it was to begin healthy habits and stick with them. During one of my speeches, someone yelled, "You have to die of something!" The audience burst into laughter. I thought I was passionately sharing ways to change daily habits and optimize health and add to a longer, more vibrant life. In truth I was overwhelming the audience with healthy tips and health concepts. Little wonder all they could think of was, "I can't give up my coffee" or "I can't give up my pastries and sweets," worried that there would be nothing left to eat to gratify their taste buds or their emotions. After the outburst and having lost my audience, I changed my approach. In future talks, I would say, “It is true we can't live forever. But if you and your loved ones can extend life 5, 10, or even 20 years and rid the feeling of constantly being sick and running to doctors, what’s that worth?"
Who is your target audience, and why do you think this book will appeal to them?
This book is really for anyone looking for motivation and adaptable strategies to positively influence their health (body and mind). It's easy to read and can be a resource to those who are already living a healthy lifestyle or can be a source to those looking to start their health journey.
